Full description
Your 5-hour trip begins with a pick-up at your Prague hotel and a drive to the town of Terezín and its fortress. You’ll travel in air-conditioned comfort on a bus complete with complimentary WiFi and bottled water.

Terezín was originally built in the 18th century as a strategic fortress for protection against the Prussian armies. During World War II the Nazis established a police prison in the small fortress, and the town itself was turned into a Jewish ghetto.

When you arrive at the fortress, the guide will take you on a journey through the wartime history of Europe. You’ll also learn what life in the largest Czech concentration camp was like.

Visit the small fortress of Terezin as well as the Ghetto Museum, which was originally built as school.

The visit at Terezin was excellent. The guide on the bus and in Terezin were excellent. The driving round Prague in circles for 1 hour 40 minutes and swapping buses I could well have done without. We were picked up at 8.20 as advised but after driving out of Prague centre, back in, changing buses at railway station and round Prague again - almost to point we were picked up- to pick up final passengers then back to railway station it was after 10 when we finally got on road to Terezin. Why we had to drive right out of Prague to pick up passengers not even on the Terezin trip and then round Prague again for final passengers is a mystery

The guide we had was very knowledgeable and personable. He shared many facts and stories about World War II and the history Terezin that he has studied over the years. You can see his goal is to ensure you leave with a good understanding of the events. I have mobility issues and he was very accommodating. Terezin itself was a sombre but yet hopeful experience.

The minibus picked us up on time at our hotel. The transport was comfortable and our guide gave us an interesting commentary in English and German. The tours at the small fortress, the genocide museums and the old town and the old school/museum were highly informative and respectful. At the end, we had the choice of hotel or Old Town for drop off.
